Frosting cookies is a task I have never attempted. It has always seemed too time-consuming and difficult. I swoon over other people's frosting-ed cookies all the time, but had resigned to being an anti-frosting-er. Then I decided that I needed a gingerbread cookie recipe on this website. The little cuties popped out of the oven and looked so naked! By depriving them of frosting I was basically ripping away any chance at having a personality. I added a touch of frosting to one little guy and suddenly he was smiling back at me. In that moment I was unstoppable! Suddenly a village of gingerbread men and women were frolicking around colorful trees and stockings and candy canes. This frosting thing is fun!
And the cookies? I thankfully nailed the recipe on the first try. These babies are PERFECT. Lucky for them they were cute so I didn't murder them all at once.
I even got some help! A friend of Elijah's was over that night and she and Sammy had a BLAST decorating the cookies. They did great, didn't they?
I will be making these every year. They are a huge hit, so cute and super yummy.
In fact, I'm tempted to make another batch today. The unborn gingerbread spirits are calling to me. Ok, maybe I'm taking this a bit too far. :)
Have a great week! Wishing happiness and NO STRESS for all of you this season!
